To My Daughter

Found this on her Facebook page. Had to put it here! I'll be posting about her birthday weekend soon - when she was here! ;-)

Visiting our Michigan Family in Iowa

Our best-ever daughter-in-law visited her parents' home in Iowa
because her brother had ventured home from Florida.

They were there long enough that we could make a trip up last week for a short visit.

Short but very rewarding - lots of smiles, hugs and happiness.

Our soon-to-be 4-year-old granddaughter enjoyed an early birthday celebration
amongst all the other excitement.

Here are a couple of photos.

Thanks, Brenda and Dan, for opening your home to us, too. :-)

The Genes get mixed nicely together when you combine families.
I just thought I'd put in a couple of photos of our own kids around these ages.

Our daughter is 2 years and 4 months older than our son.

This photo was taken August 23, 1981.
Keith would have been 2 years, 7 months
(Cheryl bumped a front tooth at 2 1/2 years and had to have it pulled at 4 years)

Keith - 2 years, 7 mos

Photo taken Nov. 1, 1981
Keith - 2 years, 9 months

April 1982
Keith - 3 years, 2 months

Just for fun. :-) What wonderful memories!
